that putin, yes, could have made obama look bad in a few ways, meeting face-to- face, in ways that -- i mean, now, if you look at it from the outside, it's almost like obama is beating putin in a political race, and putin is demanding a debate, and the front-runner has no reason to meet with him. we're beating putin economically, we're exporting oil to europe when he wants to be doing it. so putin brings him into the country and somehow brings the snowden factor out there, which can only make obama look bad. no. obama has nothing to gain, lots to lose. not surprised he cancelled it. >> i'm not surprised he cancelled it either. we have to understand what putin is like. this guy, putin, is one tough cookie. he came out of the kgb. he was the head of a lot of their, shall we say, undercover activities. he was a very tough guy that he was able to take over that country, the way he did, at the age he did. those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't. we have to be very careful about dealing with this guy. we cannot give him the feeling that he can push us around. i think this is exactl

president obama's birthday on sunday and iran is installing a new president on sunday. they don't think it's related to either of those. the information is that it's related to ramadan and that's why the embassies will be shutting down. >> tracie, thank you very much. >>> defying the request from the u.s., russia has granted edward snowden temporary asylum. the self-professed nsa leaker got the proper documents to leave. he is in an undisclosed location this morning. and while it might help the former contractor this morning, jim aceda is joining us. what are the implications for what has happened with the whole snowden scenario? >> reporter: good morning, betty. the snowden situation has strained difficult relations between the united states and russia. the u.s. does see the snowden asylum as a slap in the face really. the question now is how far is the obama administration willing to go to embarrass putin by boycotting the g 20. obama and putin plan to have one-on-one talks in moscow before the g-20. the white house is hinting to cancel that. he spent his first night in freedom as an off

that the use of chemical weapons, the use of these banned weapons by this regime is something that the obama administration absolutely must react to. again, i don't think the obama administration is interested in leading the american people into a long-term war, nor does anyone in the obama administration really believe that airstrikes will somehow embolden or sustain the opposition, the rebel sources such that they could somehow march on damascus and throw assad out. so i think we are looking at something that's probably more limited and probably more punitive in nature. >> what about the divisions in the administration? the head of the joint chiefs, general martin dempsey has been very wary about getting involved in syria. today, he was in jordan, which is one place where american planes may stage, if there is any kind of american strikes, they may be flying from jordan. on the other hand, we have secretary of state, john kerry. we heard him earlier. chris talked about the words he was using for force. let's listen to more of what he had to say >> president obama has been in close touch wi

's appearance on "the tonight show" last night. jay leno got pretty serious with president obama asking him questions about everything from his lunch with hillary clinton and his thoughts on edward snowden to his stance on the anti-gay legislation in russia. as for the current terror threat that has the u.s. and western allies on high alert and closing diplomatic facilities in muslim countries, president obama says no one's overreacting that this is a genuine concern. he says that we've already done a lot to bolster security at embassies around the world, especially in the middle east and northern africa and whenever we see a threat stream we think is specific, he says, we take some specific precautions within that certain timeframe. he does what he can or we do what we can. today, the president's going to shift the conversation back to the economy and specifically homeownership and the middle class. yesterday, he toured a home construction facility in arizona and spoke about his on-going plans to help first-time homebuyers and people still struggling in the wake of the financial meltdown.
bloodiest day since the 2011 revolution. and president obama is responding to the crisis there. the streets of cairo are relatively calm, but tense right now after a day of carnage, chaos and gunfire. the egyptian health ministry says at least 525 people were killed and more than 3,700 wounded. president obama warns egypt is on a dangerous path. and he called for an end to the bloodshed. >> and to the egyptian people, let me say the cycle of violence and escalation needs to stop. we call on the egyptian authorities to respect the universal rights of the people. we call on those who are protesting to do so peacefully and condemn the attacks we've seen be protesters, including on churches. we believe that the state of emergency should be lifted, that a process of national reconciliation should begin. >> now i want to bring in our chief national correspondent john king. hi, john. nice to see you. this is a delicate balance for the administration. we have a stake in keeping positive relations with egypt, of course our largest arab ally in that region. >> uh-huh. >> what do you think the main pu

are in "the situation room." the obama declassified a secret court's opinions which revealed the agency was broadly collecting americans' internet communication here in the united states, and misrepresenting the scope of that effort. cnn justice reporter evan perez has the story, and he joins us with details. it has points inside the united states where it can look at and monitor e-mails and other internet traffic, and what it was doing was beyond doing the collecting of foreign intelligence, is what they're supposed to be doing, trying to prevent terrorism, there were also incidentally, mistakenly they say, collecting domestic information. this is a big no-no. this is not what they're supposed to be doing. the court ruled that not only had they been violaten the law, but misrepresenting what they were supposed to be doing for three years. so the judge is very upset. >> they can't just say, oops, our bad. how do they explain why this was happening? >> well, you know essentially what the nsa had come up with, in their own minds and in their own perhaps far apparently exceeded what they c

, but these are the stories that are upsetting. over the weekend, a rodeo clown donned an obama mask at the missouri state fair. they asked if the audience wanted to see obama run down by a bull. those are the types of systemic subtle racism. what happened in missouri julian, was overtly racist. when did that become okay? when did it start up again or did it not stop? >> it has never been okay, but it started when barack obama was elected president of the united states. and when he was elected he committed a serious crime of being president while black. and for some people in this country luckily a minority, only a few nit wits and idiots, they have done every word and deed to treat him as if he is he were not a decent person. even people who are allegedly respectful like donald trump. why is he on tv today? why is he considered a serious figure? this guy is a laughing stock. but still this hatred of obama goes on. if you think it doesn't have anything to do with his race, you're not thinking at all. >> michael: we don't have to address that. it's obviously because of his race. julian, you've been on this
